It was, once again, Vivaldi's year. Already ranked sixth amongst the world's best dressage sires according to the WBFSH ranking, he has produced, once again, one of the top priced horses at the 41st P.S.I. auction with the licensed stallion Virtual Story. The year before, V-Plus Gold, who had already won competitions for young dressage horses with Frederic Wandres, was the top price stallion at the P.S.I. auction with a knockdown price of 1.3 million Euros. He has also produced the two European Championship team silver medallists Desperado N.O.P./Emmelie Scholtens/NED and Glock's Dream Boy N.O.P./Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED, the Grand Prix winners Diesel/Emma Hindle/GBR, Expression/Diederik van Silfhout/NED, Chinook/Patrick van der Meer/NED and Etoine/Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén/SWE as well as the up-and-coming stars Mount St. John VIP/Charlotte Dujardin/GBR, Harmony's V-Plus/Susan Pape/GBR and Lolita, Westphalian Reserve Champion and fourth at the German Elite Mare Championships. In 2018, it was our premium stallion and two-million-euro stallion market sensation Vivino, the Hanoverian Champion Mare Vanity Fair and Louisdor Prize winner Veneziano/Daniel Bachmann Andersen/DEN who attracted attention.
